The idea of supposed criminals having a say in our society sounds doughtying. However, allow me to pinpoint why it’s a positive, to allow criminals to vote, for most people. Recently people have been saying that criminals should not vote because they would vote for something that is wrong, that they believe may be right. Well even after this I believe that criminals should vote. The main reason I believe criminals should vote is that voting helps with rehabilitation.
It also helps those who are afraid to speak out on hate crime or who have no opinionated voice be strong. Legislation allows for certain people to be protected under the law from hate crimes against them regardless of a prejudice. However, the disagreement against this is that if the government focuses too much on those who are afraid and defenseless, than those who wish to banish them have an easier time to criticize them because the government is so focused on making them an example of someone to protect. In effect, this makes them just as vulnerable for the focus being directed
In her essay, she points that an individual should not be tagged as a criminal to the society due to his or her poverty. She also points that the government should provide more shelters to homeless, and that the government should help them to find a job in order to have them enrolled back in society. Unfortunately, the public housing, which is a support for poor families provided by the government, has been becoming an easy target for law enforcers to fine people that is in need. As Ehrenreich says, “The public housing that remains has become more prisonlike, with residents subjected to drug testing and random police sweeps”. It demonstrates the elephant in the room that the government wants to avoid such reality meanwhile people is suffering in public houses filled of diseases and filth.
Rather than being sentenced to the death penalty, more criminals should be sent to reformatories because reformatories build criminals up instead of tearing them down, capital punishment is strongly opposed by the religion and values of many people, and the process of applying the death penalty is often racist and contains several fatal mistakes. First, more criminals should be sent to reformatories instead of being executed because reformatories help criminals become better people. Reformatories can keep criminals from doing more crimes when their sentence is over and can turn their life around by keeping them positive. For example, Dwayne Betts’s description of Austin Reed, the author of a book comparing prison and slavery, explains how powerful prison is and how it can affect the rest of a prisoner’s life. Austin Reed was held in the first juvenile reformatory in the United States, the House of Refuge, wrote a book after being released from prison (Dwayne Betts, 2016).
The abuse of power is all around us, and Civil Forfeiture is no exception. The idea behind this process is something that could really help our country, but unfortunately when put in the hands of certain authority figures it loses that privilege and becomes increasingly negative towards American citizens. Of course there are many examples as to how Civil Forfeiture is not used properly, but the most obvious one is the abuse of innocent people. Police do not only target criminals but people who have done nothing to break the law. They do this in order to benefit themselves finically, as particular states have laws in place where the officer gets to keep one hundred percent of the money seized.
In Criminal and Civil Confinement, Rebecca Caroll Sager notes this dilemma and writes that "smaller sex trafficking rings will remain undetected [and] the majority of traffickers will remain unprosecuted and at large." States must increase their power by enforcing these legislations to be more effective in decreasing the prevalence of traffickers. Since the majority of forced labor institutions consist of trafficking victims, a decrease in traffickers would mitigate the practice of forced
Experts attempt to understand the cost to society regarding white-collar crimes. White-collar crimes affect society in many of ways. The crime is not as violent as other crime. However, it has a critical financial impact. Law enforcement listed white-collar crime as closed case because “the complexity of white collar crime and the difficulty of making and proving a case.” (Kennedy, 2015) This may take more than a few months or years to identify the crime and do justice.
Immigration minister James Brokenshire claimed that, the quick and simple checks will make it more difficult for immigration offenders to stay in the country. When they have no right to be here. At the same time, the Act will also serve as a line of attack against unscrupulous landlords who exploit people by renting out substandard, overcrowded and unsafe accommodation. Immigrants have become out of control for the government, so they take any chance they have to reduce the proportion of immigrants in the country. (Webber, 2014).
Prostitution may be seen as an unethical practice but there would be bounteous advantages if the entire industry was legalized. There are many pros and cons to prostitution but I believe that the pros outweigh the cons. The pros of prostitution strengthen the reasoning as to why the industry should be legal. According to Business Insider, the legalization of prostitution would reduce crime against women. Since prostitution is illegal, many times when women are abused, they are less likely to call the police because they are engaging in illegal acts.
Many people may not report counts of sexual assaults to police; however, they are seeking relief from consulting organizations. According to the Regina Sexual Assault Centre, concerns of how police investigate sexual assault are directly the result of the consistent underreporting of sexual assaults(Latimer, 2017). Furthermore, the way police handle such delicate cases has come into question. A lack of faith in an authority figure can make is very difficult for victims of sexual assault to report the crime. This lack in faith is reinforced by the unlikelihood of convicting the attacker.
